Question

Is Transport for London (TfL) monitoring whether there has been an increase in cars, vans and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) using residential roads including Hazelville Road, Hornsey Lane, Stanhope Road and Shepherd's Hill to access Archway Road northbound? If so, please share TfL's findings. If not, in light of residents' concerns, will TfL start to do so?

TfL has committed to undertaking monitoring after the Archway scheme is completed and this will include assessing any impacts on local roads. TfL took traffic counts before the scheme started so that these can be compared with the post-scheme observations.

When a scheme the size of Archway is implemented, it can take a number of months before traffic patterns and road user behaviours are established. This means that traffic patterns are not currently reliable enough to undertake repeat traffic counts. Once the scheme has bedded in and traffic counts can be undertaken, TfL will work with the London Borough of Islington, the highway authority for these roads, to develop appropriate mitigation measures if they are needed.
